While working as a creative fellow at Al Jazeera's new digital media channel known as AJ+, I was invited to take over their instagram account for a week. The instagram account was to have content that was visually delightful, informative and illuminative in some way. Since AJ+ is a channel that is built on the paradigm of the internet, I decided to do a short visual history of digital communication and bring attention to the platform on which it was living.
Below are gif loops from the Instagram posts, to view them with sound please start here.
